USA won’t renounce support for Georgia and Ukraine

2009-07-30 11:08

The USA won't renounce the support for Georgia and Ukraine and confirm their right for NATO membership, said Celeste Wallander, deputy Assistant secretary of Defense for Russia, Ukraine and Eurasia Policy, at a hearing of the US House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Europe - RIA Novosti.


Answering senators' questions Wallander reaffirmed Washington's support of Georgia to choose its own foreign policy and rejected the notion that Russia had a privileged sphere of influence in its neighborhood. Those sentiments were echoed by Philip Gordon, the Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian affairs, who also testified at the hearing.

Previously Georgia Times reported that Joseph Biden, the U.S. Vice president, in the course of his visit to Tbilisi delivered speech to MPs and said the USA will support Georgia's aspiration for NATO ever further.
